Little Miss Regency International Tysha Johnson took a turn in the spotlight at New York Fashion Week Spring 2019. She was selected as a model in the “Beauty it’s Everywhere” Showcase to model designs by two designers – Petit Parisians, an Australian-based kids couture line, and designer Miranda Rinehart for her Dress A Girl Around the World line.
Tysha, 11, a student at Kingsway Academy said she was “overwhelmed” at the opportunity to meet interesting people and wear fabulous designer clothes.
She was afforded the opportunity to showcase for the designers as a part of her prize package for winning the Little Miss Regency International title in July 2018
Hundreds of guests gathered to enjoy the show that featured designers from around the world, including Alexandra Nyman, ASHLEYlauren, Blingalicious, Dress a Girl Around the World, DRESS HAUTE, Estella Couture, Jegie Carrera, Karolina Lankocz, Marc DeFang, Opal Heart, Petit Parisians, Pixton Design Group, Queens Go Green, RAD Credentials and Talisha White.
Anishka Lockart, Miss Bahamas Teenager organization president, said she was proud of Johnson’s accomplishment.
Tyrhonda Glinton, Regency Bahamas Pageant director, said she was proud to see the youth ambassador excel.
“Tysha, her parents and our team worked hard preparing for this moment and it paid off. We volunteer of our time and knowledge without any financial gain or sponsorship. However, no amount of money can replace the intangible life lessons and skills that we share and receive from Tysha and our titleholders. Tysha executed without us being present at NYFW, and I think that is a testament to the skills imparted to her and the love and support of her parents. We look forward to following and supporting her during the next phase of her life. We are extremely grateful to her parents, Tracy and Gwendolyn Johnson, for their investment, support and trust in us and Tysha during this past year,” said Glinton.
